09/24/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I’ve loved dogs for as long as I can remember, and Rin Tin Tin was one of my favorite childhood TV shows. I was excited to meet a dog named Rin Tin Tin, expecting a gorgeous German Shepard. What I got instead was a gorgeous black and white pittie mix. Stunning in his gleaming coat (bring your sun glasses to meet this stud muffin), Rinny (we’re into nicknames, he calls me Vol) seems to be housetrained, is lovely on leash, sweet and gentle. His compact size is perfect, his weight in proportion to his size, his eyes shine and his tail wags. Posing for some photos with a big smile on his face, Rinny takes treats gently, doesn’t mind being tethered and is a perfect model. Rinny likes plush toys, actually carrying one with us on our walk for a short time. A bit hand shy at first, when Rinny was comfortable with me he allowed all petting including lots of ear and neck rubs! Rinny would appreciate a slow approach, a soft voice and a light touch, but once he decides that you’re a friend he’s all about you! Engaging with the helper dog in his first play group, Rinny may do well with a canine companion, and as always a meet and greet is recommended. Come meet our Rin Tin Tin today….and don’t forget your sunglasses.
09/22/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rin Tin Tin’s previously reported leash biting behavior seems to be decreasing so a re-SAFER was performed. He was soft and neutral during Look and Sensitivity items, but became overly aroused quickly during Tag item, jumping on assessor and mouthing forearm hard, not letting go, requiring a reset of focus using pet correction tools. Due to the hard mouthing, we feel placement with a NH partner is best at this time. SAFER info from 9/19/2016 Rin Tin Tin came into our center after a member of the public found him as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. He was nervous upon intake, but allowed handling and collaring. He was hesitant to go into his kennel. In the SAFER assessment room he appeared nervous, uncomfortable with close up handling. During Look he mouthed the leash repeatedly and pulled out of the Assessor’s hand three times. He leaned away from the assessor for Sensitivity, a bit tense. He chewed on the leash throughout Tag and did not follow. He quickly pulled back his paw on both Squeeze attempts. For Toy he took the Toy playfully, but focused on the assess-a-hand coming toward it and wanted to play with that. Throughout the assessment, Rin Tin Tin was overly focused on chewing the leash, it was difficult to get him to relinquish the leash from his mouth. The Behavior Team recommends that Rin Tin Tin be placed in an Experienced home with No Children. He will need a slow approach and slow introduction. He would do best with durable chew toys such as Kongs and Nylabones. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog is active and focused on the Assessor and all other stimuli available. Leans away and attempts to chew the leash. Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched. Chews leash throughout. Squeeze 1/2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, more interested in the assess-a-hand.
09/18/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Rin Tin Tin engages in exuberant, off-leash play with other dogs. The behavior team feels that Rin Tin Tin may be placed into a home with other social dogs. Rin Tin Tin arrived into our care as a stray, so there is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs, and it is unknown how his behavior around dogs will translate into a home setting 09/18/16: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Rin Tin Tin is cautious of the yard environment. He allows the female greeter to approach and sniff. Rin Tin Tin display sinterest by reciprocating greeting and sniffing. When solicited with play, Rin Tin Tin briefly bounces and offers “toe taps” in response. 9/21: Rin Tin Tin plays exuberantly in a group of playful female dogs. 9/22: Rin Tin Tin engages in rough play with playful dogs.
